Quick One

So yes, you may have noticed yesterday that I updated my post. Around 11h30 I got a phone call from the Estate Agent (not a useless one at all!) and my offer on the Garden Unit was accepted :)

Not only that, I also stopped worrying about my car registration because it was paid last Wednesday. And this morning I got my refund from the dining-room table :) After 2 rough weeks, things look like they're back on the up for me :)

Now I have things like bond applications and legal forms to worry about ... hee hee. Sheesh and the info the Bond Originators require is quite exhaustive, but I'm hoping to have it all together by the end of the week (I kinda wish I'd known what they'd needed in advance so I could be a little more prepared for this but anyhoo).

I also had the chat with my land lady and that went well, she's agreed to sort out our geyser issue (the one that has us sharing it between 6 people!). My only wonder is how on earth one house racks up a bill of 3grand a month for electricity - does anyone know if there is such a thing as an Electricity Auditor, because I seriously think we might need one.

And last night I went out sort-of celebrating with CollegeInstructor and MissB to MissB's favourite spot, The Magic Forest (which is actually a new place called JD's where Kumquat used to be). It's great, we ate and drank under leafy trees and fairy lights :)

And hopefully I'll be off to watch Alice in Wonderland this evening too :)

Yay! So exciting to be a homeowner. Well done, Phil.

Magic Forest sounds awesome. And it's less than 1km from my house (if it's the same Kumquat I'm thinking of). Will have to visit.
